The town was the site of one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada and one of the biggest mining booms in state history. The community called Nelson was named for Charles Nelson, a camp leader who was slain in his home, along with four other people, in 1897 by the renegade Indian, Avote

Interacting with our tour Lady. She was very knowledgeable of the history and property of Eldorado, she made the experience 10x better, she embodied not only the history and aspects of the tour, she also gave us personal experience of who she was and why she does what she does.

Hotel pick-up was fast and convenient. Alisha was a fantastic guide! ATV instruction for first time users was very helpful. Gold mine tour interesting. Lunch was filling; more than anticipated. Highly recommend for a fun family/group outing that is off the grid.

Sherman and Alysha were GREAT! Called to confirm pickup time and exact location. At pickup, the next day, they remembered to check footwear I had asked about on the call. Both provided great instructions for safety and outlined their expectations for how the guest should drive their vehicle. Everyone in both the ATV and Polaris groups had an amazing time. I recommend EVERYONE that visits Las Vegas to go DRIVE a Polaris at Eldarado Canyon, if they want to have the most fun on their vacation. The FUN our group of four had there far exceeded the fun we had visiting either the Hoover Dam or Grand Canyon West. No comparison and it's been the only thing we've talk about since our return home to Nashville, TN.
